Hi everyone. I had been hypo for around 8 years (I'm 35) and have always been on 75 mcg thyroxine every day. This was until a month ago when my gp increased my meds to 100. A week into the increase I began to feel ill with nausea, diarrhoea, agitation, nervousness. At first I didn't realise it was my meds and thought I had some sort of virus. Then I began to get night sweats and felt over heated at times during the day. Then one night I vomited. After having various other blood tests done it dawned on me about my increase in meds I mentioned it to my gp and he said I had presented some symptoms of hyper, well I think I had most of them! It also caused my period to arrive 5 days early.
I am writing on here today because I would like to know if anyone else has been through similar? I have been practically housebound for a month because I have felt so poorly and anxious. I have slipped into a bout of depression and trying to stay calm and focus on getting better. Also does anybody know - I was on 100 mcg for a month and had the last one 3 days ago when is the thyroxine likely to have left my system?
I also feel so exhausted now is this all normal?
Many thanks for listening xx
